However, for the musicals featuring Esther Williams, swimming champion and resident studio "mermaid," animals were usually accessories.
Let's take a look at Esther Williams' career.
- Neptune's Daughter (1949) - Esther Williams absently pats a random dalmatian on a horse ranch as Ricardo Montalbán looks on.
- Dangerous When Wet (1953) - In this film, Esther Williams has a plot-stopping cartoon dream where she swims with Tom the cat & Jerry the mouse, eye candy for kids.
- Jupiter's Darling (1955) - A leopard accompanies Esther Williams on her morning walk as she wears zebra skin. The leopard is one of the conquered treasures that Hannibal (Howard Keel) shows off, merely a status symbol.
- Publicity Stills - There are any number of publicity shots like this with Esther Williams and some aquatic creature.
